Highlights

  • From September 2016 to March 2017, Tanzania experienced an increasing influx of refugee arrivals from Burundi. In a span of seven months, 89,000 refugees arrived, accounting for over a quarter of the current population (312,000).

  • This influx forced WFP to increase its planning figures and resulted in critical funding shortfalls. As a result of limited funding, WFP reduced rations and issued a funding appeal to development partners at the end of May.
